Pimento And Hot Pepper -The Mento Story

Pimento And Hot Pepper -The Mento Story

In Jamaica, before there was ska, reggae and dancehall there was mento. This is the history of Jamaica’s first popular music, which peaked along with the worldwide popularity of Trinidadian calypso in the 1950s. Stylistically unique, mento is the original sound of Jamaica and is still played across the island.
